Atlantic Builders donates $250,000 to GCC for second year in a row
From Germanna Community College:
Last year, Atlantic Builders had such a great experience working with Germanna Community College that the Atlantic Team has once again chosen Germanna to be the recipient of its annual Charity House Gift.
It’s the fourth year in a row that Atlantic Builders has completed a home benefitting a local charity. In these projects, trade partners and suppliers donate materials and labor at a reduction in cost or in many instances for free. This year’s charity home will be built in the Avalon Woods community of single-family homes located in Spotsylvania County. One hundred percent of the profit from the sale of the home will fund the donation. Last year the total donation given to the Germanna Educational Foundation was a quarter of a million dollars.
For the first time, trade partner employees and their families can directly benefit from scholarships allocated just for them. Ten scholarships per year for the next five years will be dedicated to this purpose. “Atlantic Builders trade partners invest so much time and energy into building quality homes, that Atlantic Builders wanted to ensure that an investment is made in them and their families,” says Tom Schoedel, president of Atlantic Builders.
“Atlantic Builders is a leader in so many ways,” said Germanna President Janet Gullickson. “The quality of its homes. Its commitment to its trade partners and customers. Their generous donation will allow employee and trade partner families to continue their educations at Germanna, along with other students. We are so very grateful for their community spirit and generosity.”
“We are humbled that Atlantic Builders chose the Germanna Educational Foundation as the Charity House Project proceeds recipient for the second year in a row,” said Bruce Davis, GCC Assistant to the President for Institutional Advancement and head of the Foundation. “In addition to scholarships for the trade partners and their families, a large portion of the proceeds will go to the Germanna Guarantee Program of student tuition gap funding, to help students with financial challenges to graduate on time. In today’s “new different” we are very grateful for Atlantic Builders and their trade partners.”
